>I Hate Fairyland
I think that title is enough for me to avoid it at all costs.
it seems to be popular, a lot of people buy it at the comic shop i work at. to me, though, it just seems more or less like skottie young sort of 'letting it all out'.
everyone knows him as the guy who does all the cute stuff, all the young variants for marvel comics and all the other cutesy sort of stuff he's done (i remember him doing an alice in wonderland comic at some point).
so i suppose in a way, fuck fairyland is just him breaking his own rules and drawing something morbid and edgy to get it out of the way, to let out that sort of repressed feeling he has whenever he draws something cute.
I see what you mean, but I'm gonna go ahead and do it anyway.
I wrote a big long thing about it but to sum it up, the art is beautiful but Young doesn't do a good enough job making me hate Fairyland so the main character comes off and unreasonable in her actions. Has moments of potential but it's Halloween candy, all style no substance.
Why doesn't the bitch just help her find the damn key and let her leave if she's this huge menace worth spending these resources on just send the royal guards or whatever to help or just command the people to look the entire conflict of this story makes no sense
I think the queen summoned her to get the key she couldn't get or find so that she could send her army to conquer Earth. She's using kids to do her dirty work. The problem is that Gertrude could probably decimate her army at this point.
Based on what is in this thread I'll give it a couple more issues
I really like the art but like some other people have said, its kind of already blown its load and is moving too fast so I can't see a reason to care
At least the loli is cute so it has that going for it.
>complains that something that's edgy is being called edgy solely because you've been inculcated into thinking that it's a word you have to be against
>"I hate this meme"
I hate you. You specifically, you can just go jump into a fire.
It's okay, I'm not a hair fetishist.
I assume she was weak initially. By pure luck she didn't die and started leveling and accumulating equips over the time. Now you got a maximized stats character in a fantasy world.
Perhaps it appeals to your hidden inner sadist?
Please, O great and wise Anon, educate us on 1) what edgy is and 2) how I Hate Fairyland does not meet every single one of the criteria to be the edgiest edge that ever edged.
well, that was completely unnecessary and over the top.
oh an it keeps going
and going and going... I though this was going to be a nice trope-butchering fairy story
This has probably been done before, but I thought it'd make a good reaction image
Yeah, it'd be better to call it shocking than "2EDGY". It's trying REALLY hard.
I honestly hope it tries to be a bit more serious with the storyline, so people won't just call it edgelord bait.
It might just be parody on dark gritty reboots, but I hope it becomes more than that.
I'd honestly love to see a work of fiction where a young child goes into a fairy tale like world and questions everything, and actually wants to leave instead of staying forever.
There's probably something like that.
No. It's just that it's been done a thousand times by now. Dark satirical takes on the whole Disney formula. South Park, Family Guy, Conker's Bad Fur Day, even Wreck it Ralph, this brings nothing new to the table. It's at least better than the Unfunnies.
I was going to ask how Wreck it Ralph was a dark satirical take, but then I remembered how the Sugar Rush racers were tiny and cute but huge assholes that could very well be side antagonists.
That's never happened in a Disney movie, I don't think.
Don't forget the scene where Calhoun was punching the ever loving shit out of Felix. Fuck Frozen, Fuck-it-up Fred is the best cgi Disney movie. I would also love to see a comic book featuring the racers, where they all hate each other and they all try to kill one another in order to win the race.
>what the fluff
Why? It's so fucking cringeworthy.
It's a comic about death and dismemberment, and then you got that tumblr-esque nonsense self censoring. Is the author a bitch or something? Scared to go all the way?
I hate it.
Well it wasn't the worst version of this concept I've seen and some of the jokes worked okay. I'd never pay for it or really put effort into finding the third issue, but if someone happened to story time it after it came out I'd probably have a look.
There will probably be some joke attached. There are some potential outcomes, that are tragic wins.
She might return, the same moment and age she left, but is now 27 years more crazed when she meets the world around her.
She might return, but 27 years have actually passed in her absence... and/or she now looks like: >>77772922
>She might return, the same moment and age she left, but is now 27 years more crazed when she meets the world around her.
I would actually like to see this outcome. Imagine being ten-years-old with the mental state of a 37-year-old. Has a comic with a similar plot been done?
>All of the battles that happen appear offscreen (the giggle giants are a big example of this)
How a little girl manages to fight against larger characters would be interesting to show. Is she fast? Is she smarter than them? Having her using physical strength can only be used a few times before it goes stale.
its in the context of those being the Fairlyland equivalent of fuck. she's been stuck there for 27 years, shes bound to pick up some vernacular. i dont know where you got the tumblr boogeyman out of it
You shut your whore mouth.
If Gertrude and Clarissa traded places, would they basically both enjoy the outcome?
Then fuck /a/, no tastes at all.
Clarissa'd probably find the key and then either have to use it, forcing her to go right back, or deliberately ignore it so she wouldn't have to.
Gertrude, if we're going back to when she was first a kid, would be broken. If we're talking about how she is now, she'd probably go nuts on him.
I would think Clarissa would ditch the quest, so she didn't have to return to her father. Gertrude is horny enough, she probably wouldn't mind Clarissa's father at all, and would probably end up being the predator.
The key has to exist. Isn't the whole point of this story that Gertrude was supposed to go on a short day long maaagical adventure, find the key, then go home, but she was too much of a fucking idiot and got herself lost for 27 years?
It's still the most logical answer as to what happened so far.
Or else why bring a little girl to Fairyland and torture her enough so she becomes a mini leatherface and starts killing/eating your subjects? It seems she's pissed enough to want to kill her now too, so something went wrong.
I imagine the whole "little girl quest" thing is some kind of obligation in their RULE book, like they have to let some kid in and do the quest every few years or so. Maybe the key was deliberately stolen by some third party asshole who wants to see Fairyland burn.
>It's still the most logical answer as to what happened so far.
It isn't. If it were they wouldn't just let her smash her face on the ground and immediately send her on a quest with only one guide that doesn't really know where they have to go.
>Or else why bring a little girl to Fairyland and torture her enough so she becomes a mini leatherface and starts killing/eating your subjects? It seems she's pissed enough to want to kill her now too, so something went wrong.
Or she was supposed to have died ages ago. Oh she survived the crash? Send her on a pointless quest without any food or medical care and wait until some monster kills her or she eats something toxic.
Considering the theme of the book it sounds more like there was a dark reason for them to bring kids to their world like in many dark fairy tale stories.
This would be a great way to kick off the final confrontation between Gertrude and Cloudia. Cloudia tells Gertrude that the whole thing was a metaphor, and Gertrude couldn't be more angry.
Then why is there a rule that the Queen can't let any harm come to any fairyland guests? I think there is a key and Fairyland USED to be a nice place with fun adventures for kids, but like Gertrude they became jaded and bored with the routine. So they just let her smash her face into the ground, they give her an apathetic sidekick, they don't care what happens to her.
Of course instead of dying or finding the key Gertrude survives somehow instead. Which is a bit of an asspull but I don't think the story is meant to be taken too seriously.
Something that might support the existence of an actual key, is how she keeps getting clues from locals, and then not really following them properly. If she were simply getting bogus clues, then it would be a pretty clear conspiracy to run her around endlessly. The fact that she is screwing them up herself, probably means that she is just bad at all the quest aspects except fighting monsters. >>77773083
>Then why is there a rule that the Queen can't let any harm come to any fairyland guests?
She can't CAUSE any harm directly but she was quick to hire people to do that for her.
> I think there is a key and Fairyland USED to be a nice place with fun adventures for kids
Why a nice place for kids would have alcohol, drugs and hired assassins?
That's a good point. Why her assistant don't just translate them to a way she can understand instead of just hint I don't know. On the other hand why don't they just give her the key or send her to the correct place so she will stop causing trouble?
Another idea could be that it was a metaphorical key that depended on a childish innocence to be solved but with them not giving a shit about her turned her into a bitter person and thus unable to find the key. Now their lack of care resulted in a murderous bitter loli causing destruction on Fairy Land.
My guess is that they are obligated to go through the motions of the quest, but there is some ulterior motive that make Cloudia want Gertrude to fail. Cloudia could have the key tucked into her cleavage, but somehow letting Gertrude leave would end Cloudia's own eternal reign.
I'm not sure why nobody has mentioned calling a locksmith.
Probably not. I guess the assumption is that Cloudia would show her the door when she returned with the key. That does seem like a set-up for some kind of punchline in which Cloudia must admit that she made the whole thing up.
That was... funnier than I expected it to be.
Her "normal" form being a giant obese diabetic person was pretty depressing. I mean Jesus. What happens if she leaves now? Does she just revert to that?
Overall I give it a 4/5, it succeeds at what it wants to do and I got a few laughs. The gore is somewhat predictable but I do actually care about what happens to the main character. Which given a story that is a combination of Shrek and JTHM, I didn't expect.

>I'd honestly love to see a work of fiction where a young child goes into a fairy tale like world and questions everything, and actually wants to leave instead of staying forever.
You mean I hate Fairyland?
Where she hates all of the fucked up logic and just wants to leave
I liked this comic. Solid character design and great use of color. It's "edgy" but I don't get the feeling that it's trying to be edgy in the same way Crossed/JTHM/ect tries to be edgy. This is more "yeah the story is gory to contrast the fluff, but we aren't trying to make a statement or put any real shock factor into it, we're doing it for fun"
You. I like you too.
Reading some plot summaries.
Queen Cloudia is forced to bend the rules of Fairyland in hopes to rid their world of Gert once and for all.
Gert will face her greatest foe yet, another human child named... "Happy". Will she survive the power of true joy? Spoiler: This time, I'm not sure. We'll see how it goes.
This begs the question,
if new human children are showing up, does that mean that time is still moving on the outside?
Gert finally has a face to face with Queen Cloudia. Will she leave with her face, or will it be blasted off her rotten skull by the Queen?
This has got to be where some big plot issue is revealed. Evil monologue and all that.
its funny how it says that the king/queen can't hurt guests, i have a feeling Cloudia will renounce her title just to fuck up Gert
its kinda funny too how much thought we are putting into this shit
She's just not very good at the whole magical quest thing?
Preview pages seems just slightly different than the published form.
